    And also Iowa, since the Iowa Supreme Court ruled that the ban on Gay Marriage is unconstitutional. Iowa. How wonderful and hopefully soon lawful throughout our land.

    Iowa of all places. I have always thought of Iowa as flat and conservative - guess I was wrong. If they can legalize it in Iowa we can legalize it in ALL the states of this country. The law nor the constitution has the right to dictate who can marry whom. Courts are supposed to make their rulings based on pragamtism not moralism.

    The news about IOWA made my day today!!! Here in Idaho, it is still legal to fire someone just because they are gay. Idaho will likely be one of the last to jump on the equality train, but I am so proud of Iowa! Hopefully we will have good news about Vermont and California soon, too!

    ETA: Thanks for starting this thread, southcitymom! I was going to, but was too afraid, haha. The last thread we had about California quickly turned into political bickering and got moved to the Political forum. Praying that this time we can avoid that.

    4th state, SCM.

    Gay marriage is still legal for some of us in California, and will be legal for all some day. (Though maybe not without another referendum.)

    [my bold]

    That's beyond my comprehension re firing someone because of lifestyle preference.

    to Iowa.

    Thanks, JBean. It was really scary. The fires (and evacuations) were on the other (north) side of town, but there were uprooted trees, downed powerlines and roofs blown off all over. I haven't seen anything like it since I was a kid and enjoying (because I didn't own the property and wasn't in charge of the clean up back then ) Florida hurricanes.

    Another one down!!

    Link
    Vermont, the state that invented civil unions, on Tuesday became a pioneer once again as the first state to legalize gay marriage through a legislature's vote. The House barely achieved the votes necessary to override Gov. Jim Douglas' veto of a bill that will allow gays and lesbians to marry beginning September 1. Four states now have same-sex marriage laws and other states soon could follow suit.

    Bills to allow same-sex marriage are currently before lawmakers in New Hampshire, Maine, New York and New Jersey. The three other states that currently allow same-sex marriage Connecticut, Massachusetts and Iowa each moved to do so through the courts, not legislatures.

    Nova, it looks like they're not giving California credit. (It still blows my mind what happened there.)

    GO VERMONT!!!!
    First one through legislative vote! More to come!

    Our country has DOUBLED the states that allow gay marriage in one week! If only we could do the same every week!
